My Newest Favorite Salmon Recipe

After our rather gluttonous dinner last night, I settled on a healthier dish tonight. I found a recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try. And, I am so happy I did; this is one of the best salmon recipes I've come across! Mid-mouthful, my sweet husband turned to me to say that he "would be so happy if he had received this dish at a restaurant." Needless to say, I was quite pleased with this recipe and highly recommend it! P.S. It only took 30 minutes to prepare from start to finish!
Garlic Crusted Salmon with Tomato Basil Relish

Ingredients
  • Salmon
    • 4 skinless, thicker-cut salmon fillets
    • 2 garlic cloves, pressed with garlic press
    • ½ teaspoon sea salt
    • ½ teaspoon fresh pepper
    • ½ teaspoon paprika
    • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 lemon, cut into 4 wedges for garnish
  • Tomato Basil Relish
    • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
    • 2 garlic cloves, pressed through garlic press 1 teaspoon lemon zest
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
    • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
    • Pinch fresh pepper
    • ¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
Directions
  1. For the salmon:
    1. Preheat the oven on the Broil setting.
    2. In a small dish, combine the garlic, sea salt, pepper, paprika, lemon zest and juice and olive oil, and whisk with a fork to combine.
    3. Place the salmon fillets onto one of the lined baking sheets, and rub the garlic-oil mixture evenly onto each fillet; set aside to marinate for 35 minutes. (Note: I only marinated the salmon for 10 minutes and it tasted great!)
    4. Broil for 8-9 minutes until moist and flaky inside with golden-brown crust. (Our salmon cooked for 15-20 minutes.)
  2. For the tomato basil relish:
    1. In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve with the salmon. 
  3.  To serve, place salmon filet on a plate and top with tomato basil relish.
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes
*I didn't follow the recipe for the potatoes that's accompanies with the salmon recipe.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 lb. of fingerling potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil 
  • Salt and Pepper
Directions
  1. Slice the potatoes in half and place the potatoes on a baking sheet.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the potatoes in the oven on Broil for 15-20 minutes. Broil until the potatoes are browned and tender.
For the asparagus, I used my own recipe, which was a great compliment to both dishes!
